ok i have a fender super60 amp
and i guese aparantely its 60 watss of tube power but it feels like less
could someone do the math and tell me if 2 6l6 have the kind of power to put out 60 watts
oh yah and apparantely i need something louder for outdoor gigs and **** like that should i just get a cab because its only a 12 speaker or get a new amp with more wattage
i play punk and grunge/garagy stuff so thanks for the help
the 60 could be heard trough the drums but it dosent cut through that well you know its on the point/treshold even at max volume

Halfstacks can bring down walls, but totally unneeded to be honest- I have one because I got a good deal on it but I really wanted a Peavey Valveking 212 combo, those are 100w tube combo amps, great for rock to punk to metal, you should check one of those out.

60 Watts tube and its not loud enough? Take it to a tech and get it checked out because that should be REALLY loud.

Try replacing the tubes. 60 watts tube should rip your testicles/ovaries either off and/or out...

do you cut the mids? because 60 watt is loud as **** and should easily cut through.

+1 one to checking the tubes. If that thing is cranked the people in the front row should probably be getting slaughtered, like in 300.

My HRD has 2 6l6s and it pretty damn loud. If I ever take it outside I have to turn it down as to not piss off the neighbors too much. Luckily I have an attenuator now.

if you have more than 1 guitarist (you) than its clear why you don't cut trough. try to have the mids above (higher) than the bass and roll back the bass a bit.

thanks i guese you guys already answeared my question
ill do what you guys advise to tell me and probly buy a cab if needed after i check it up
#23
A cab won't make it louder. The loudness of the amp is more determined by power that the speakers, though if you have very bad/inefficient speakers then a new one could make some difference.

#24
Nevermind the reason i guese the seemed week is because im right next to the speaker and the drum and my ears are always ringing but today again i went over to friends pad envited the homies got some beer and some bud started drinking and smoking and started mashing again and we ran out of bud so i went a couple houses over like 8 or 9 to get some more from my dealer and ill be damned if you still could couldnt hear that amp my friend was playing trough it and it was loud as ****
#25
Actually a cab will help if it doesnt' sound loud enough, hook it up to a 4x10/12 cab.

More speakers means more air being pushed equals the energy being distrubuted over a large space meaning more people will hear it besides the first ten people that the amp is pointed to.

oh yes poor grammer on my part
and i plan on buying a cab and a vibrolux head if there in production i hope they just dont sell combos
by the way you guys think a vibrolux with a metal muff will be sufficient for punk or would it need some sort of OD as well
the reason i want a vibrolux is beacuse its just a beatiful amp on the cleans nothing beats it
